.                             HISTORY AND REMINISCENCES OF THE CONNELLY AND WALKER FAMILIES by Wm. W. Hooke, 1900
.                             JOHN WALKER Sr. of AUGUSTA Co. VIRGINIA married Miss Sarah CONNELLY of Augusta Co. Va. The Walker
.                             and Connelly families immigrated to America about the middle of the 17th century [Lin: sic - later it says they landed
.                             in 1720]. They were Scotch-Irish Protestants, and in church connection Presbyterians. Alexander (Arthur) Connelly had
.                             four sons and one daughter, named Arthur, Alexander, Samuel, Williamson and Sarah Connelly.  Arthur Connelly was
.                             killed by Indians to procure his rifle, which he had refused to sell to them.  Alexander Connelly rode under a tree for
.                             shelter in a thunder storm.  Lightning struck the tree, killing man and horse.  Samuel Connelly moved to KENTUCKY,
.                             married and raised a family.  Williamson Connelly went to MISSISSIPPI and engaged in surveying land for the govern-
.                             ment. He never married that his relatives knew of. Those Connellys were back to Virginia to visit relatives, the writer
.                             recollects them, about the year 1834. The writer also recollects seeing his old great-grandmother Connelly when she was
.                             nearly 90 years old, and living in her daughter's family.
.                             JOHN WALKER Sr. and Sarah (CONNELLY) his wife raised eleven children, to wit: Elizabeth, Alexander, John, Jane,
.                             Robert, Pollie, Sallie, Thomas, Patsie James, Rebecca.
.                       3.   From Chalkley, Vol 2, p 300, 8 Sep 1791:  John Walker and John Connelly, surety. John Walker and Sarah Connelly,
.                             daughter of Arthur Connelly (consent); witnesses, Thomas Connely, Saml. Frame.  (Note by RRC: Sarah 'Sally' CON-
.                             NELLY, b 11 Mar 1768, Augusta Co., VA, d 7 Sept 1842, Augusta Co., VA, bur Old Stone Cem, F.D., VA, m 8 Sept

                      .D., VA. The CONNELY family came to Augusta Co., VA, in 1745 from PA having been in that state since 1735.)

.                             daughter of Arthur Connelly (consent); witnesses, Thomas Connely, Saml. Frame.
.                       5.   From Chalkley, Vol 2, p 338, 3 Jan 1801:  Alex. Connelly and John Walker, surety. Alex. Connelly and Nancy Jackson,
.                             daughter of ____ Jackson, deceased. John Walker swears that Nancy Jackson has lived with him for eight years and when
.                             he engaged her, her mother told him she was fourteen.

.                             Alexander Walker is said to have had 21 children ( "Genealogical History of the Descendants of John Walker of Wigton,
.                             Scotland, 1600-1902" by Emma Siggins White, 1902). probably by 2 wives ("A Record of the Ancestry and Descendants
.                             of James Alexander Walker and Sarah Ann Poage From 1730 To 1930", page 36, unpublished manuscript submitted to me
.                             by M. Caldwell Butler). I know a great deal about his descendants through his daughter Margaret (she married Thomas
.                             Connely; this is my direct line) and through his son John (he married Sarah Connely d/o Arthur Connely; Arthur was the
.                             brother of my Thomas Connely) but I know little about his other children.
